Tis’ The Season to be Cozy

This time of the year I love candles, cinnamon smelling anything, and a good home-cooked meal.   After work , it’s nice to go home to a comfortable, warm, and inviting environment.

Think: lots of candles, fluffy blankets, christmas lights, and puffy pillows.

I go over to my friend Becca’s apartment every weekend and love it for this very reason.  We can listen to pandora and veg. out.

Becca has mastered making a comfortable environment.  Her urban studio is decorated with candles, Christmas lights, and framed pictures of the outdoors.  She claims that it is easy to do.  I have, yet, achieved her level of comfort in my current apartment, but believe the 10 things below can help make ANY living situation cozy during the holiday’s.

10 ways to get cozy:

1. Candles Everywhere; variety of shapes, sizes, and scents.

  1. We’re so on the exact same page, Candice. All I want right now is to be cozy… and, to nest and spruce up our home to make it cozier! My cozy go-tos: peppermint tea, candles and some cuddling on the couch 🙂

    LOVE those Christmas lights and am planning to pick some up at Target this week.

    Have a fabulous, cozy week, dear!

  2. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who
    has been doing a little homework on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch because I
    stumbled upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….
    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this matter here on your
    website.
